Guide to Flute Music by Women Composers
Hildegard is proud to offer a fine selection of distinguished flute works by women composers. Several of our publications have even been National Flute Association winners in past years.
Flute and Piano
Aurora, was commissioned by the National Flute Association Inc. Young Artist Competition (2017). A flutist, as well as a composer, the composer writes that the work “is an ode to the flute repertoire I grew up with. French in feeling, the piece takes advantage of the flute’s flexibility." Schwendinger celebrates the possible colors of the flute through this virtuosic work.

This interesting piece for solo flute includes many musical palindromes as its palidromic title implies. In addition to this unusual structural element, the work is also influenced by jazz and folk music.

Four Glimpses of Night
Inspired by a poem of the same title written by Frank Marshall Davis, this piece is in four movements that reflect the poem. The writing is expressive with searching, fluid lines in varying rhythmic patterns with changing tempi and shifting moods. Rich musical material allows the player to indulge in imagination, light and dark use of tone, more free phrasing, some light tonguing and dynamic range creating a sense of magical wonder and lightness of spirit, as if accompanying four vignettes.

Flute or Violin & Piano (includes separate parts)
This piece can be played equally effectively by flute or violin. Composed in two contrasting sections, Figueroa's music recalls her native Argentinean folkloric music especially in the use of rhythm and melodic color.
